Congratulations on your engagement! A wedding is always a beautiful, and sometimes stressful occasion. You have chosen your Jewish wedding invitations and you just want every detail to be perfect. However, some hiccups are to be expected. One that can possibly be avoided is un-useful or unwanted gifts. How do you ensure that you get the gifts you want? Here are a few tips in that regard.
A registry is one of the classiest ways to request specific gifts. Take the time to go through your registry and select only items that you truly want. If possible, limit the number of the gifts to try to avoid any duplicates. Within your invitation or further correspondence with your guest, encourage them to use the registry and denote it on the registry once they have purchased it.
For those closest to you, such as your bridal party, you can emphasize the gifts that you truly desire. These individuals clearly love and support you, so they will most likely want to be sure that you will enjoy your gift. In your approach be honest, but try to avoid sounding demanding. Depending upon your friends’ personalities, you will know the best approach to take.
A person can never go wrong with a gift card or cash. That way, you are guaranteed to get what you want. A polite way to encourage it could be to include directions to the registry in the wedding invitations, and on the registry have a precise list of the things you desire and include a gift card option.
There is a common saying that, “a closed mouth will not be fed,” and that saying rings true in this situation. Though you want to display some tact in making your requests known, it is critical that you clearly denote your wishes. This serves as the best manner for you to receive what you want.
"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."
"This invitation was exactly what we were looking for! It has our wedding colors on it. I love how you can personalize it with whatever font you like. We ordered it on the shimmery paper and loved the turnout. Can't wait to get them ready and send them out! Thank you Wedding Paper Divas! They are beautiful."
"I really liked this design, but I was nervous that it would be hard to communicate my tweaks without meeting someone in person. I made a couple of tweaks, and the team was able to complete all of them and they made the product even better than I was thinking. Really easy process and the took minimal effort on my end!"
"The paper was nice, but not super thick (which is what we wanted). The printing looks very nice. The font is on the smaller side, but it was exactly what we expected. Also you are able to adjust the text size if you ask the designer."
"Exactly what I had in mind! Absolutely perfect for our picnic in the park wedding. The paper is substantial, the artwork is exactly as depicted online and the text looks beautiful."
